4 BOOKS FOR INCREASING PRODUCTIVITY & CREATING NEW HABITS

Sometimes you just need some motivation or some tips and tools for increasing your productivity or for creating new and better habits. Therefore I have 4 books for exactly that, to share with you today!

Books about Productivity

Eat That Frog! – Brian Tracy


‘Eat That Frog!’ is a brilliant little book. It’s a very easy read and very manageable. It’s about how to overcome procrastination. You might recognise the feeling of putting off that one thing that you just keep on postponing? This book gives you the motivation and reasons for why ‘eating that frog’ as the first thing, is the best thing you can do for yourself.

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People – Stephen R. Covey

This book was one of the first ‘self-development’ books I ever read, and it is about the habits that ‘effective / productive’ people have. It covers several different aspects, such as personal management, seeking to understand first rather than to be understood and many other habits that will change your life.

Books about Creating New Habits

Atomic Habits – James Clear

I’ve already made a more in-depth book recommendation about this book, but this book is all about how creating small tiny changes in your life will add up over time and make a big difference for you. It is better to make a little change, and stick to that little habit over time, than it is to set a way too big and unrealistic goal and quit within a week.

The Power of Habit – Charles Duhigg

‘Atomic Habits’ have many of its principle from ‘The Power of Habit’. I think both books are interesting in their own ways, where ‘Atomic Habits’ are more manageable and give good concrete steps to take, ‘The Power of Habit’ give more insights into the psychology behind habits. Why we have them, and why we can have a hard time breaking some habits. So it’s a really fascinating read, especially if you’re into psychology & understanding the human mind.

BOOK RECOMMENDATION – ATOMIC HABITS

Do you like to improve yourself and creating new and better habits, which can change your life into a better life? Then this is a book for you! The book Atomic Habits by James Clear.

This book is all about how creating small tiny changes in your life will add up over time and make a big difference for you. It is better to make a little change, and stick to that little habit over time, than it is to set a way too big and unrealistic goal and quit within a week.

In this book, James Clear comes with several small brilliant examples of how these small habits over time will have a significant impact on your life – for the better. Do you want to live healthier? Instead of saying to yourself to quit all sugar right now, eat tons of veggies and exercise 5 days a week – start small. Try to eat 1 more vegetable each day, or add 1 smoothie to your diet each day. Over time you can begin to increase the amount, but start small and continue the practice.

I can highly recommend this book, especially if you are into growth and self-development. James Clear offers some very practical guidelines on how to change your habits, and lots of inspiration!
